Brian Mcknight When The Chariot Comes Lyrics

Last updated: 01/25/2010 10:00:00 AM

Hey ho, hey ho [repeat throughout song]
Oh, oh, gidyup

All of these flowers
For this friend of ours, it's such a shame
All of these people
All of them equally feel the same
There's silence and weeping
Looks like he's sleeping, the children say
They say he was ready, I hope he was ready
Is the prayer I'm praying

When Gabriel begins to blow
Victory shall be mine
When the horses get ready to go
Angels won't leave me behind

[1] - I'm gonna be, got to be ready
When the chariot comes
(When the chariot, when the chariot comes)
I'm gonna be, got to be ready
When the chariot comes

(Giddyup)
Over the prairie
The pallbearers carry and lay him to rest
Satan's a cheater, Christ is the teacher
And life's the test

Oh Lord, take me higher
Never liked fire, I can't stay here
I gotta get ready, gotta get ready
Time has drawn near
When Gabriel begins to blow
Victory shall be mine
When the horses get ready to go
The angels won't leave me behind

[Repeat 1]

As I lay me down to sleep
I pray my soul you keep
If I die before I wake
I pray my soul you'll take
'Cause I gotta be, gotta be ready, when Jesus comes
When that chariot comes
Got to be , got to be ready, when the chariot comes

Said I've got to be, got to be ready
When the chariot comes

[Repeat until fade]

Excellent Song | Reviewer: Ryan O'Neil Seaton | 7/27/2006

What! No one has submitted an review for this song yet! I just finished comparing this song to Mariah Carey's "Fly Like a bird" and i have to say that Brian has outdone himself with this entry. Now if only they could have arranged to make accompaniment tracks for such a superb song. The compostion is brilliant with the marching drums, chelo, violins. Excellent song for a funeral. I've sung this with the track at Funerals. Shows of profound the words are. NOw if only the folk could have heard the stellar composition.
